M made cherry pudding with some of the cherries we bought at the market on Saturday. We were up kind of late, with the pudding coming out of the oven at midnight. Of course we had to sample it while it was warm and fresh.
Cherry pudding is good for breakfast, as a snack, and as a dessert. We usually serve it with milk poured over it. I imagine it would also be good with ice cream, especially when it’s still warm from the oven.
This cherry pudding recipe came from my mother-in-law who got it from her mother. How far back it goes from there is anybody’s guess.

- 3 eggs
